With one movie based on a fake Grindhouse trailer hitting theatres this weekend, and Eli Roth in the process of fleshing out another one, believe it or not, there is also a third Grindhouse spin-off getting a feature film as well — and no, I’m not talk about Edgar Wright’s Don’t. Back in 2007, certain prints of Grindhouse also had another trailer attached for a movie called Hobo with a Shotgun. The trailer was directed by Jason Eisener, and earned its spot as the winner of a SXSW fake trailer contest held by Rodriguez himself. Now Eisener is turning Hobo with a Shotgun into a real movie, and the first teaser trailer is playing with Machete this weekend.
For the feature-length version, Eisener managed to recruit Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) in the lead role, but it does not quite have the same star-studded cast as, say, Machete. However, what it lacks in star power, it makes up for in pure authenticity. This thing looks every bit as low budget and ridiculously violent as the exploitation movies it seeks to emulate. A release date still has yet to be announced, but shooting has wrapped and the movie is currently in post-production. For more info, stay tuned to the official website; now check out the all new unrated teaser trailer for Hobo with a Shotgun after the jump!
